D-Day At Pointe-Du-Hoc

The program airs at 9 p.m. Monday, 24 June on our local Az. PBS station.

"D-DAY AT POINTE-DU-HOC tells the remarkable story of the U.S. Army’s 2nd Ranger battalion. Led by Lt. Col. James Earl Rudder, the soldiers scaled the 100-foot cliffs of Pointe-du-Hoc in Normandy on June 6, 1944 to destroy six German cannons situated halfway between Omaha and Utah Beaches. Many believed it was a suicidal mission for the men involved. Narrated by actor David McCallum (The Man from U.N.C.L.E. and NCIS) and featuring interviews with surviving veterans from the Pointe-Du-Hoc assault, the documentary chronicles the dangerous and daring mission. Weaving together the first-hand accounts, striking drone footage of the English Channel approach and imposing Pointe cliffs, and rare archival footage of the 2nd Rangers preparing for action, D-DAY AT POINTE-DU-HOC shares an incredible story of adversity and courage from World War II."
“Every tick-tock is a second of life that passes by, that flees never to repeat itself. And it holds such intensity, such interest that the only problem is knowing how to live. May each person solve it as best they can.”
